All Aboard for Little Riddle

littleriddlersSet deep in the heart of rural England, the village of Little Riddle has plenty to offer the discerning visitor.

Little Riddle is best experienced when visited by train. The magnificent steam locomotive allows you the time to drink in the scenery, providing a beautiful introduction to the area before pulling, majestically, into Little Riddle station.

The station affords you your first glimpse of Little Riddle, and is everything you’d expect from a quaint English railway station. As Little Riddle is a quiet village you can expect a warm and friendly greeting from the Station Master.

Once you enter the village itself your first port of call will probably be the hotel, allowing you the opportunity to offload your luggage, take a breath and gather your thoughts before you head out to explore the village in more detail. While the hotelier may not seem as outwardly approachable as the Station Master, don’t let his abrupt nature put you off. The hotel is certainly the best in the area, and you’ll soon warm to his almost constant complaining about his guests (and their pets).

For a rural village, Little Riddle is certainly blessed with a multitude of places to visit, many harking back to a simpler life and allowing you to feel as if you’ve left the hustle-and-bustle of stressful city life behind you. Take in the splendour of the last working watermill in the area, watching the water glisten as the wheel spins. When you visit the mill, you may even have the chance to speak with the Miller, who’ll be more than happy to talk about his work and the local area.

If your journey has inspired you to write home, and encourage your loved ones to take a break in Little Riddle, then why not pay a visit to the local Post Office. While many rural Post Offices are facing closure, Little Riddle’s is going from strength to strength. This is the place to come if you want to grab a postcard featuring one of the beautiful buildings in the area, or to listen to any tid-bits of local gossip.

Little Riddle boasts one of the finest Town Halls in the area. Situated in the heart of the village, the Town Hall is a must see for any visitor and, if you time your visit just right, you may even get the opportunity to talk with the Mayor himself.

The town boasts a welcoming atmosphere and friendly locals who are literally dying to meet you. Should you wish to visit this charming locale, the next train to Little Riddle leaves a station near you on December 17th. Tickets will be available from the Playstation Network.

    What a charming sounding little, um, game? What exactly is the player required to do in Little Riddle? I feel compelled, but I’m not entirely sure why.

    I would hazard a guess at the game being similar to Professor Layton.

    I have visited the quintessentially quaint town of Little Riddle, was a most entertaining time. Hope y’all enjoy it.

    Celeste, what you’ll find is an excellent episodic murder-mystery game – episodes one and two land on Dec 17th.

    As for similaties to Layton – it has puzzles which actually fit the storyline rather than “ho ho, as we enjoy this chilled beverage why not solve a puzzle about squirrels wearing hats” like you’d find from the professor.

    Heh heh. This looks very interesting.

    Oh…..for a PS3. My kingdom (of rust) for a PS3.

    Seriously I bought a PS3 for this title alone. It’s a bit good – and set to get better as the episodes roll out. Hoping to see a second season… Hint hint Jade 🙂

    Hint noted Jake! Let us finish making season one first of all :p So, if there was a Season 2, where do you think the next murder file should be set…?

    I may have an idea or two….

    I am so pleased to see “Blue Toad Murder Files” heading to the PS3. As a huge fan of Clue growing up, and as an avid collector of Agatha Christie novels, I was dying for a murder mystery game. I have dreamed of a third-person, 3D English manor to explore in the game world. While not quite a manor-house mystery, “Blue Toad Murder Files” is a step in the right direction. I am so pleased! Jade, how about an eccentric cast of characters trapped at an old estate for a will reading next time around? 😉 Or a deadly ride on an elegant passenger train? Hope to see more mysteries to come!
